These two girls just landed in Iceland
These two girls just landed in Iceland
She was sitting on the couch while I was putting Lucy’s lunch together this morning. I turned and saw her staring at me. She smiled and I burst into tears. It’s gonna be a long week. Graduation tomorrow.
Just a few pictures from May so I don’t forget
We had our first trip to the ice cream shop.
We found an awesome park close by. We plan on spending lots of time here once school gets out.
We took the birthday girl out for lunch. Can you believe she is 22?!?!?!?!
Beck got some new wheels
Jon and I went to a couple of concerts in May, including a double date with Matt and Jen.
Speaking of double dates….. we had lunch with Kirsten and G.
Now he thinks he’s the coolest thing out there.
Mother’s Day love with my kids
3 generations (who like to match)
My dad had some heart procedures done recently and I spent a few days with my mom
Megan’s chorus had their senior night and I pretty much cried throughout the entire thing. When her friend Kamryn sang I Will Always Love You I pretty much lost it. Her voice is amazing!! Her friend Lexi sang Thank God for Small Towns and I cried through that one too. It’s safe to say that I’ll be a blubbering mess at graduation and will probably embarrass her and my entire family. Ha!
Can’t forget Lucy’s Memorial Day program. I usually cry through that one too. This year Beckett kept me too busy to get teared up. He finally met Patrick (one of the babies that Megan and Chloe babysit for). It did hit me that I won’t be at the elementary school for this program for 4 years!! So sad!!
A few more photos from the month:
We did a collaboration with Herobility. LOVE their baby products! Use code Jillfriary20 if you’re interested in getting 20% off 3 or more products.
That pretty much wraps up May. Megan is out of school and busy having fun with her friends. Emma is done too and getting ready to hit Iceland next week with Tess. Chloe and Lucy have a couple of more weeks but I know that they’re eager to finish up. We have a fun summer planned and we are all more than ready to get to it!
One more thing, scroll back up and look at that last picture of Beckett’s face. How cute is he?!?!?!?!
Another day that went by in the blink of an eye. I’ve been pretty emotional lately with all of these end of the school year things so I’m just going to let the pictures tell the story
I was so excited when she texted me that her and Alex got prom king and queen
She’s as pretty on the inside as she is on the outside. She is one of the most caring, loyal and honest people out there and NO one deserved that more than her.
I had to add that last picture of her and her favorite teacher. Now it’s on to graduation. I told her I probably won’t stop tearing up through the day until Thanksgiving break. Love you, my Meggie 💕
Let’s get caught up on the end of April before all the hoopla begins! May and June are hands down my busiest months! May starts Friary Family birthday season. We have 6 months straight of birthdays in this house. Throw in prom, graduation, graduation parties, confirmation and all of the end of the school year activities and we are pretty much out straight. But, you all know that I LOVE it!! We have such a fun summer planned and I’m sure it’ll be here before I know it.
Let’s just take a look at some of the pictures I’ve taken over the last 2 weeks first
This boy is growing like a weed!! He is SO smart and SO funny!! I LOVE moments like those pictured above because I know that before I know it I’ll be writing about his graduation. He wants me to rock him to sleep before every nap and every night before bed so I’m just going to sit here and soak it all in.
The weather is starting to get nice so we’ve been spending as much time outside as possible.
We took a Happy Meal to Lucy the other day and Beckett was in Heaven!! He loves being around her and her friends. The girls always have friends over and he is always the center of attention. Ha!
Love these girls!
That picture above was posted by Tori Spelling this week. I have to admit, he is just the cutest little guy EVER!! Instagram has been keeping me SO busy lately!! I just got offered my 8th collaboration of the year. So exciting!! Come visit me over there at instagram.com/jillfriary
Jon hosted the Legend’s box last week at the Red Sox game and it was pretty awesome
Megan had her final choir concert last Sunday morning in Worcester.
The girls sounded amazing!! I’m still trying to get over all of the “last’s” with her. It’s crazy!! Wasn’t she just 9 years old singing in the 4th grade chorus??
Beckett and I had a lunch and shopping date with our friends
Jon got another 4 tickets to the Red Sox and took Emma, Chloe and Lucy (Megan had a date)
I took Beckett out for pizza and then we hung out watching Boss Baby (currently his favorite movie)
Another quick week!! A few more Pics from the week:
I’m pretty sure this boy just keeps getting cuter
When I first started this blog I used to post a lot of Lucy art. She is a fantastic little artist!! A couple of years ago she was trying to earn money for something and my dad made an “art deal” with her. He would pay her $5 for the pictures she brought home from art class. She’s probably sold him about 10 pieces by now. Ha!! I love how much he encourages her though. It really is the sweetest thing.
This most recent piece of Lucy Art is my absolute favorite so I decided to keep it for a little while before letting her sell it to her grandfather
Amazing, right?? I’m totally thinking this one is worth at least $10 😉
I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I’ve updated over here. Not that we’ve had anything interesting going on. Ha! I do have a lot of pictures that I want to post, though. Of course they’re mostly of Beckett.
Grocery store pictures are always my favorite!
February vacation started off with some pretty amazing weather!
And ended with two kids having the flu
Have you ever played hide and seek with a toddler?
Five toddlers later and I still think it’s funny
Megan finished up her cheer career
I’m not sure if I posted that one last month but I figured I’d add it again here. It was a little bittersweet She’s worked so hard over the last 4 years and has made some amazing friendships from that cheer squad. She’s ready for her next chapter though. We went to open house at her college and we got to meet her new roommate and her parents. I think she’s going to love living in Boston SO much!!
The way my driveway looks when teenagers have friends sleep over:
Lucy dressed Beckett up in her robe and he looked like E.T. to me
She is SO good to him!! All of his sisters are. This kid gets nonstop attention around here.
a couple of days ago I put Beckett in time out and told him to keep his bum on the stool. 30 seconds later he walked through the kitchen like this
I can’t say no to him so he ended up taking this puppy home from the grocery store
A few more Beckett photos
His little hand in his pocket kills me.
Colton came up with my parents last weekend. EVERY time we see him I take a picture of Lucy and him together (besties).
Beck needed to get in there too
He thinks he’s so funny. Ha!
I’ve had a lot of companies reach out to me since the beginning of the year asking me to do collaborations with them on social media (soooooooooo exciting!! )
One of the companies is Ashtonbee baby. This is one of their bowls:
Another one is Jord watches
I’m going to have another blog post on the watch alone later in the week so be sure to check back. I’m hosting a pretty good giveaway with them so make sure you enter!!
Beckett has a new favorite drink. It’s called a blended chocolate milk. Hahaha! He always hears the girls talking about Starbucks so it’s just one of those places he always tells me he wants to go to.
After a quick Toys R Us trip on Saturday
We took Beck to Starbucks.
He was a little curious about his sisters drinks too
But ultimately decided that he liked his best
Love my new little Starbucks date 💕
I am trying so hard to get over here and record some of life lately, I have a bunch of random photos from the last week that deserve a little spot on this big World Wide Web.
We took Chloe, Lucy and Beckett to the aquarium this weekend
After the aquarium we walked over to Quincy Market to grab some dinner
I don’t usually look like I’m about to do yard work when I’m out in the city (hooded sweatshirts are never a good idea) but the aquarium was celebrating the Patriots so I had to show my support 😉
Lucy is trying to convince us to get another puppy……. more on that later
Speaking of Lucy, she is the sweetest sister!! She loves taking care of Beckett so much!!
This kid is such a charmer!! He smiles and talks to everyone when we’re out in public. He’s such a happy little boy 💙
I had to take a picture of these three before they headed off to school the other morning. I know they’re going to complain about the picture. Ha! That’s the reason why they’re not on my Instagram more. All grown up!! *sigh
I love the way he holds my hand when he’s on my lap 😍
